Heat the refried beans in a small saucepan or in a microwave until very hot.

Warm the tortillas, one at a time, in a dry skillet over medium heat. Flip the tortilla from side to side until crispy. Transfer to a plate.

Spread each tortilla with half of the beans. Top with the green onions, lettuce, tomato, and optional avocado. Top with salsa.

Additional Tips

You could use Black Bean Dip instead of the refried beans. These tostadas are also great with Mango Salsa and Low-Fat Guacamole.
